It feels so odd to be done.
Writing and studying took three years of my life in graduate studies, but I've been in post-secondary education since 1997.
I have steadily been learning for 12 years.
Now, I'm done.
So much stress, so much money, so much time and pressure, so many details, so many questions and now...nothing.
Sweet, sweet nothing.
I don't have any deadlines, no approvals, so meetings with committee members...I'm free.
So is my brain.
I'm taking fiction back :)
I have earned my M.A. and now, I can read anything I want for fun, for entertainment, for amusement, for pure joy.
Taking fiction back is a rite of passage.
